    I need to adjust it more because I didn't really know how to do that at first.

    I think this will be fitting to put on it like this...

    So would it look out of place or odd if I had rim brakes up front?

    not at all that was actually an old biker joke/ law by pass here in cali..
    my buddy jack luna took first place at a few shows with his first chopper that he built out of Arlen Ness's shop in san leandro in the late 60's. california law called for a front brake, didn't specify beyond that...

    Depending on what you used, I don't think so, but you might have trouble mounting them on that fork. I think with the disk in the rear, you should have pretty decent stopping power. It may equate to an unnecessary hassle, or an interesting welding project, however you want to see it.

    Yea I know nothing really exciting, but I added some of the last details. Now I have to decide if I will leave the truss rods raw metal or slap some black on them like the chain guard.

    I'm thinking that I should change my skull valve cap out with one that is red.

    Yeah if your going to trust the rust, you should have some. I thought maybe you were planning to rust up the frame too after i saw that badge.

    What would work the best to preserve the bare metal look?
